The World Economic Forum, through leveraging its leader-level multistakeholder and interdisciplinary platform, is working to expand the effectiveness of multistakeholder Internet cooperation and problem solving through dialogue and collective action. The Forum partnered with the Berkman Klein Center on the Future of the Internet Initiative’s Improving Information for Decision Makers track, now known as the System Initiative on Shaping the Future of the Digital Economy and Society. The Center’s work is focused on three areas of activity:
Research and analysis, aimed at understanding key trends, developments, and issues across all layers of the Internet to strengthen the evidence base for public and private sector decision making that affects the future of the Internet.
- Collaborative platform-building and digital problem solving, aimed at bringing together software developers, scholars, and other stakeholders to engage in the development and deployment of real-world solutions to vexing cybersecurity problems
- Capacity-building and education, aimed at exploring opportunities to better inform senior level decision-makers in the public sector through teaching programs, educational materials, and interactive tools and dashboards.
